A warm, sunny run. My miles were 14:35/135, 15:44/141, and 16:13/140. It’s a hilly route and it gets hillier as it goes. I ended with strides as prescribed by my 10K training program that I’m sort of following. It’s the only speedwork I do and it’s only once a week, so I hope it’s okay.
Today’s workout challenge:
- 50 crunches
- 80 squats
- 20 crunches
- 20 reverse crunches
- 14 ab twists
- 20 second plank
- 30 squats
- 40 second plank
- 40 Russian twists
- 20 crunches (which weren’t very good, in my son’s opinion
Managed to eat enough calories today, but a glass of orange juice and my Vitalyte took me way over the sugar count.
I can zip the dress I want to wear on Saturday!
Tomorrow, I am adding an extra day of running. Just half an hour on the treadmill for now. I have a long way to go to get to a decent mileage base. Luckily, this low heart rate training is pretty pleasant and it makes me want to run every day. The hard part is knowing that I have to build up very gradually and that it would be a good idea to keep at least one rest day for now.
